Military Prosecutors: bin Laden’s Driver Did Not Cooperate After Capture News Wire

WASHINGTON, July 25, 2008 — Osama bin Laden’s former driver did not fully cooperate after he was captured in Afghanistan in 2001, federal investigators testified.

Mlitary prosecutors allege bin Laden’s driver, Salim Hamdan, knew the target of the fourth jetliner terrorists hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001. Hamdan stands trial before a U.S. military commission on terrorism charges.

Prosecutors say Hamdan was one of a few people who knew that the jet that crashed into a field in Pennsylvania was intended for the U.S. Capitol because he overheard a conversation between bin Laden and his deputy. Two other jets crashed into the World Trade Center, and one into the Pentagon.
